Dear FHL Friends and Family,
Autumn has quietly fallen on FHL, bringing the new 2018-19 academic year and UW Marine Biology students to FHL. This fall begins the UW Marine Biology major in the College of the Environment, and therefore more interactions between FHL, the School of Aquatic Fisheries and the School of Oceanography at UW.
We are hosting a submersible! OceanGate Inc.‘s Cyclops 1 is coming to conduct research here in the Salish Sea for a week. This project is a partnership between UW FHL in the College of the Environment, The SeaDoc Society on Orcas Island, and the OceanGate Foundation in Everett.Read more »
Greetings FHL friends and family,
Happy Fourth of July!
Friday Harbor Labs is having a very busy summer, with 46 students learning in our three active courses:
Marine Invertebrate Zoology (FHL/BIOL 432)
Marine Botany: Diversity and Ecology (FHL 446)
Marine Subtidal Ecology (FHL 568 A)
We have an enthusiastic group of undergraduate researchers in an FHL Blinks/BEACON/REU program, and summer activities such as our annual “Jazz at the Labs” which supports our K-12 program.
Join us Saturday, June 30th, 6 – 9:30 pm for our 18th annual Jazz at the Labs. All proceeds from Jazz at the Labs benefit the Friday Harbor Laboratories K-12 Science Outreach Program in the San Juan Island Elementary, Middle, and High Schools and the Spring Street International School.Read more »
